WOMEN

Ladies Guild and Arts Club

Membership of the Ladies Guild and Arts Club costs £10 per annum for Synagogue members and £15 per annum for non members.

Guild membership and the Arts Club gives members a unique opportunity to participate in communal events and outings and to give something back to the community by volunteering.

Ladies of all ages are welcome to join the growing team, which is actively involved in our welfare work.

We visit those community members who can no longer leave their homes.
We organise the cooking for the communal lunches and an array of fund raising events, raising money not just for the Synagogue but also for other charitable organisations.

Our annual card lunch in the autumn is always popular, as is our annual su-per quiz in the spring.

From time to time we have a literary lunch or host a guest speaker. We have great fun every year decorating the succah and organising social gatherings on the various festivals.

The Guild organises duplicate bridge sessions every Monday afternoon in the Moritz Gertler Hall. This is open to men as well as women and is run by Mike Eden, a professional Bridge Director.

The Arts Club organises frequent outings to art galleries, country houses and other places of interest. All are popular and many new friendships are made. Outings are also open to gentlemen.

Women’s Learning Activities

St John’s Wood Synagogue offers an exciting and extensive programme of events for women of all ages.

We have learning programmes during Shabbat services with Rebetzen Ra-chie and Rebetzen Dina, entitled ‘Siddur Schmooze’ and ‘A Taste of Torah’.

Rebetzen Chai’s course on Simple Truths: Pivotal Jewish Insights for Centered Living is also available.

A midweek women’s shiur takes place on Wednesdays at 10.30am in the Bride’s Room, led by Debbie Meyer. A further shiur in French takes place on a Thursday morning.

There are also social, educational and youth events for girls of all ages led by the Rebetzens.

For more information please contact one of the Rebetzens: rachie@shulinthewood.com; chai@shulinthewood.com; dina@shulinthewood.com
